I worked with Harris through the whole pregnancy cycle: conception through post-partum.
I first sought treatment with Harris after a couple years of trying to conceive. At my first appointment Harris began to share his wealth of knowledge about conception and I received my first acupuncture treatment. After just a few sessions, I learned I was pregnant. We were thrilled.
Near the end of my pregnancy I returned to Harris to prepare my body for childbirth. I worked with him to open up my pelvis, promote optimal positioning of the baby, and provide gentle stimulation to aid the birthing process as I progressed. He also taught my husband and I acupressure points to use at home, both before and during birth. I felt great and my body felt so ready to birth our child! Our baby was in the perfect position and very low down in my pelvis.
When my birthing time came we had a wonderful water birth at home, but I haemorrhaged after. I started to suffer from insomnia and what felt like heart palpitations and incredible pressure surges when I tried to sleep. I felt awful and was no longer able to enjoy the first days with my son. I sought help from Harris again and he was able to diagnosis the problem – my body was having trouble coping with the blood loss. Harris was able to help aid my blood regeneration. I saw the results right away was able to sleep again hours later. Harris saved the day and I was once again able to enjoy those precious first days with my son. I was so happy to feel good again!
We are incredibly grateful to Harris for his compassion and his expertise in the field of reproductive health. He is a true asset to the birthing community.
